LNG Tanker has grounded in the Suez Canal

The LNG Tanker Grace Emilia transiting Suez Canal grounded at Km 125 before Great Bitter Lakes; however the SC tugs are currently involved in re-floating process and then will tow the vessel to the Great Bitter Lakes.

The impact of the vessel’s grounding are as follows:

  • The Northbound convoy passed normally and all the vessels behind LNG Grace Emilia have been cleared already.
  • Southbound convoy has stopped now, waiting for the vessel to be refloated and then vessels will resume the transit.
